The Makeup Look: Water and Smokes

Last week was a whirlwind of happenings that had me constantly on my feet. I have never been this busy and I really am quite unsure whether to feel blessed or tortured. Mixed feeling, indeed. Despite the age of 29 I still feel like that 18 year old girl who constantly surprises myself with what she can accomplish.

One of the things that calms me when I have a full schedule is the thought of being in the beach watching the moonlight glisten in the water as I sit and have a refreshing mojito. Another of course is when I get to do my makeup in the morning.. and I was blessed last Thursday when I had a chance to whip out my Urban Decay Book of Shadow from Grace!

Playing with the inspiration of nature and the beach, I chose blue and green as eyeshadows and smoked it a bit for the evening event I was to attend later on that evening. It also matched well with my black top and mint skirt from Forever 21.

As always, accentuating the eyes are important to pull off a colorful smokey eyes. Line the eyes and load up on the mascara. Of course, I used my reliable Maybelline Eyestudio Gel Liner and my current favorite mascara, Fairydrops Platinum Film Type (review coming up soon!).
